Uganda Premier League
Tooro United 0-2 Maroons
Tooro United suffered a third consecutive loss in the Uganda Premier league, on Tuesday.
After losing to Vipers and Wakiso Giants Wasswa Bbosa’s side lost 2-0 against Maroons at waterlogged Betway Muteesa II Stadium Wankulukuku.
The match was played for 80 minutes after a delay due to heavy rains.
Solomon Walusimbi broke the deadlock for the visiting side with a simple finish in the 7th minute following a defensive error by Isa Lumu.
Tooro almost equalized in the 11th minute but Issa Mubiru’s effort from a free-kick was expertly tipped over by Maroons’ custodian Hannington Ssebwalunnyo.
Tooro came closer again in the 42nd minute of the game but Godfrey Lwesibawa’s shot was not well directed. They were at it again in the 45th minute but once again it was Ssebwalunnyo at Maroons’ rescue with a save from Ibrahim Kayiwa’s shot
Steven Mukwala doubled Maroons’ lead in the 68th minute with yet another strike from another defensive mix-up. Rashid Agau dribbled past Tooro’s defence but was closed up by custodian Chris Kusiima who failed to secure the ball which was pounced on by Mukwala.
Speaking to the press after the match, Tooro’s assistant coach Eric Ndifuna said the team has not lost hope and the boys are optimistic that they will win the upcoming games.
“Our fans shouldn’t lose hope yet, I believe my team will bounce back strong and win other matches,” Ndifuna said.
Tooro United will visit URA at Mandela National Stadium Namboole on Friday and head coach Bbosa will be back on the touchline after serving a two-match ban.
